Posted on January 29, 2008 by

This semester we welcome a new PhD student to the department, Candide Simard1. Her supervisor, Eva Schultze-Berndt2, describes her1 project on her2 website thusly:

“Candide Simard is currently working on a PhD thesis on the prosody of the Australian language Jaminjung, jointly supervised by myself and Philippe Martin (Paris-7). Candide is conducting fieldwork as part of the ”Jaminjungan and Eastern Ngumpin” Project funded by the Volkswagen foundation, with the goal of describing word stress, the intonation contours for different sentence types such as questions and commands, and the interaction of intonation and other markers of information structure such as special particles and word order.”
